Notes
Alex B met eight members of Bukudumira group .They are the leaders of small groups that were formed to meet while observing the guidelines that was given by the ministry of health about COVID -19. The small groups are seven in number. Margaret waiswa thanked the leaders of the small groups for organizing the members and engaging them in their discussion. She said that since big gathering are prohibited,there’s need for them inform the members as how they can develop the group. The income of the majority is from agricultural and their saving from the crops they grow. It is right time for them to have enough food for their families and also to have balance getting money out of it.Peter a leader one of the small groups suggested that when there’s more than needed by the family,the rest will be sold for other needs and even for saving in the group. The meeting was attended by the Alice the treasury for the group. She was concerned that since bank account was opened,then saving is important for members to do it.She added that depositing money on the account through saving will make it active. Alex B advised them to encourage the members to participate in all activities for group. Their presence of everyone in every meeting is very important and what is discussed should be noted down for record purposes. The development of the group is determined by the way how they contribute towards development. The environment and activities that are always done by community is a key issues to development. Alex B told them coordinate with the members freely and open to one another.He urged the leaders in small groups to be the exception in every thing .The availability and way how to perform in the group matters a lot.The sacrifice and contributing it terms of finances and time by the leaders is necessary. The next meeting we shall discuss the project that will lead them to personal and group saving since it almost harvesting period.
